Pay and Rewards

Gender Pay Gap cover

Pay and reward benefits at Westward are set at a level to attract and retain the talent required to lead the organisation and make sure it can  deliver its strategic objectives. In doing this Westward takes into account comparable evidence and benchmarking data from a range of sources both within and outside the sector which is provided by external consultants.

Our aim is not to pay the highest salaries in the market but instead to offer a competitive package of salary plus other pay and non-pay benefits.
